Article: Gasket selection using the gasket design factors as per EN 13555

Gaskets for Industrial Applications

The European Standard EN 13555, updated in the summer of 2014, defines the sealing gasket design factors and test methods for round flange connections. This allows the comparison of the properties of gaskets. Among other things, the standard establishes a new definition of the maximum surface pressure. What changes does this bring for the operators of plants and what criteria should be considered in the selection of gaskets using the characteristic as per EN 13555?

Reliable Sealing of Heat Exchangers

Gaskets for Industrial Applications

ePTFE gasket tapes for high chemical resistance - The connections to shell and tube heat exchangers pose immense challenges for the seals that are used because of both the chemically aggressive media and the frequent temperature load changes. Despite its excellent chemical resistance, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is not typically suitable as a sealing material in this case because the creep tendency of this material jeopardizes a reliable seal.

Now Available: Cold Temperature Adhesive (CTA) Option

Gaskets for Industrial Applications

Sometimes you'd rather not be outside. But the flanges are. Gore's form-in-place gasket products, with their convenient customization, provide an excellent solution for large flanges. But often those flanges are located outside and are exposed to cold weather. Low temperatures may significantly decrease the effectiveness of standard adhesives. Gore's cold temperature adhesive (CTA) is specially formulated to stick to flanges in extreme cold temperatures—down to 0°F (-18°C). The cold temperature adhesive option is available on a seasonal basis in North America.
